I cannot reproduce on an Ultra5 running Solaris 8. I have fairly recent patches installed.

Is anyone familiar with an apparent problem in the Solaris 8 screen lock
process, I believe "dtscreen" (the lock icon in the CDE system tray
invokes this command) allowing for a combination of the "Shift" and
"Return" keys to cause the process to core dump and allow access to the
currently running session? I have litterally done nothing more than notice
this last night, have not had chance to run any debugger yet, etc.

I presume this is a known problem but I encountered it quite by accident
last night on an old Sparcstation I keep about the house - I'm mostly a
Linux nut but thought I had installed most of the available security
patches...anyway, if someone can confirm I'm missing one, then cheers.
